Pinched Nerve in Neck (Cervical Radiculopathy)

Do not ignore neck pain, it should be treated as soon as possible, otherwise there may be serious problems

Cervical radiculopathy commonly known as pinched nerve is a painful condition in which there is damage to nerve roots in the neck area (cervical spine). This results in compression and inflammation of the nerve roots thus affecting nerves attached to it. These cervical nerves are attached to shoulders, arms, hands, upper back and chest area.
